Pattern Book of various needle laces
This book is primarily one of patterns of various sizes, shapes and designs of lace one makes with a needle. There is no dialogue teling you how to make the lace, it is presumed you already know how to do this. There are various caligraphy styles demonstrated in the book. The book may be a reprint of a 1640 pattern book, but last page of book has insertion that the party bought the book in Rome in 1900.
